(Disclaimer: thought I had posted this - just found in my draft folder - SORRY!!

We bid a fond farewell to 3 of our missionaries just before Christmas.

Missionaries, Simba and Us - Hate to see you go!

Plenty of Photo OPS!

Must have souvenirs - Caftans (President Hill pulled his Nigerian one out for this Photo OP)

Our sleeping mats - being readied for the night's sleepover:

Departing missionaries all tried to finish the Book of Mormon end of year (in their case - end of mission) challenge - before boarding the plane for home:

Must play one final game:

The going home suit.  If they brought a suit this is the second time it's been worn - Arrival and departure days!  Many have suits made here to wear home - personal tailors!

Handsome group!
